Meze

Duke Ellington and his Orchestra, Dizzie Gillespie and Louis Armstrong; just some of the greats that became known as The Jazz Ambassadors flew to the middle east in the 1960's. We traced their steps and wondered what they may have eaten on tour...

Origin - Khorason region of Iran

Flat Bread

£2.95

Freshly made sourdough flat bread, baked on the premises using an ancient wheat originally from the Khorason region of Iran. Now grown in the UK, rolled and baked on stone giving an authentic texture and flavour. Award winning Kimberley Bell from Small Food Bakery has sourced our wheat and helped create our dough recipe. Enjoy simply on its own, brushed with melted butter or olive oil or with sumac and thyme.
